The Praeger Handbook of Occupational and Environmental Medicine captures the full scope of this discipline in a way no other comprehensive work can match. It combines three volumes on the underlying principles of occupational and environmental medicine (OEM), central issues, and practice insights. Together, they span the entire field of occupational and environmental medicine, including its scientific foundation in epidemiology and toxicology, the critical, often-overlooked discipline of risk science, management of common medical problems, and practical issues such as management and workers' compensation. The Praeger Handbook of Occupational and Environmental Medicine will be welcomed by students and OEM practitioners, including crossover physicians working toward board certification. Focused on the daily realities of OEM and addressing a number of controversial issues, this work makes it clear why this field is so important to public health.

Review quote

"Reflecting the trend toward unification of the two fields of occupational medicine (workplace health) and environmental medicine (which looks broadly at air- and water-born health threats), this single-authored reference is intended for physicians-those who intend to specialize in OEM, those shifting to the field in mid-career, and those practicing occupational medicine who want to rethink their practice in broader terms. It's also intended for health professionals, scholars, and students who want historical background on the two fields and a framework for putting them together." - SciTech Book News "More than an introduction and less than a compendium, this volume offers a very readable description of occupational and environmental medicine. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice "... a three volume set that constitutes convenient one-stop shopping for everything that is important in practice. The set is designed to replace a bookshelf and to be a primary resource used over and over again. Dr. Tee Guidotti single-handedly wrote this three volume, 1,600-page series, a massive achievement in this day and time. The publisher, Praeger, is focused on becoming a major publisher in this field. They are off to a good start with this book. It is an excellent resource and a very good deal for the money. This series is essential reading and has replaced a book shelf in my library." - CSIMS Bulletin
